Berkreviews.com Movie Club episode 067 – My Neighbor Totoro
Continuing with the theme of ’80s movies, Jonathan (@berkreviews) picked My Neighbor Totoro (1988) directed by Hayao Miyazaki starring Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, and Tim Daly. Corey (@coreyrstarr) had also never seen this film or any other Studio Ghibli film so this was a big episode for both. Jonathan had seen Spirited Away several times and is a fan of that movie, but is lacking experience with the rest. The icon character of Totoro needed to be seen!
Next Episode: The Last Unicorn
The last episode in their ’80s exploration will be The Last Unicorn (1982). The film is directed by Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin Jr. and stars Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, and Angela Lansbury. It’s a movie that Jonathan hadn’t heard of, but Corey found on a list of must-see ’80s movies. At the time of recording, The Last Unicorn is available to stream on Amazon Prime.
Berk Reviews Movie Club – General Info
Corey and Jonathan both realized they had a ton of movies they’d never seen. In an effort to work through their gap list, they started this podcast to ensure they at least check one new film off the list almost every week. Thus, for a film to qualify for Movie Club one or both have to have never seen it or at least not seen it for a long time.
